What happens to white light when it passes at an angle through a prism?

What happens when light passes through the prism in wrong angle?
There is no 'wrong angle' - it either passes through the prism or it doesn't. The blue or violet waves will be the most diffracted. ...

What happens to light when it goes through a polarizing lens?
It depends on the angle of the polarizing lens. If the angle of incidence is 90, then light passes through the lens, however, if the polarizing lens is rotated by an angle of 90 degrees, clockwise or counter clockwise, light is unable to get through the lens ...

What happens when light hits a transparent object?
Most light passes through an non-polarized transparent object, but it may have changed its direction depending on the refractive index of the substance and the angle of incidence of the light ray. ...
What happens when light travels through different materials?
When light passes through one medium into another at an angle 'Refraction' takes place. This is caused by the light wave's change in speed as it enters a different medium such as from air to water. ...

What is the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction when a light ray passes through different materials?
The angle of incidence is the angle at which a ray of light (which is not at right angles to a surface) strikes a surface. The angle of refraction is the angle at which a ray of light, having passed through a surface, travels through the body of a substance. Normally the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction are not the same. ...
How does light behave when it is refracted?
Refraction occurs when light passes from one material to another, where it travels faster through one material than through the other. For instance, when it passes through water or glass, it slows down. If it passes through at an angle, then that angle is increased or decreased depending on the circumstances. Also, the different frequencies of light (colors) can be separated out, making a rainbow effect. ...
Asked in Chemistry
Explain What happens when a beam of light passes through a colloidal solution and why?
When a beam of light passes through a colloidal solution it scatters because of tyndall effect. ...
Why is the angle of incidence equal to angle of refraction in the case of a light ray passing through the optical centre of a convex lens?
Because this light ray passes through without being bent.
